She seemed to recognize that what she did upset you and hopefully she is recognizing that her illness isn’t being managed as well as it could.
I’d say when she’s nice and wants to try and get better, reach out a bit and be a friend. But when she’s starts cussing and being angry or suicidal… you always have the right to say, “Ok, maybe your not doing so well today. I’m going to hang up now.”
You can’t trigger yourself into relapse. But you can set some parameters. You can tell her… One, no cussing me out please. Two, no talk of suicide. If you talk suicide, it’s time to go see a doc.
I don’t like to see people suffer or end up alone, but no win situations with no change doesn’t help either.
There would be nothing wrong with accepting the apology and chatting a while but keeping to your boundaries. But let the friend know what your doing and way. She might surprise you.
The old me would just cut people out and never tell them why. But I’m trying to get better with people. So I’m working on this as well.
